If you’re not committed to the Lion’s End Spring Schola, Armiger Catelin Straquhin is organizing an Østgarðr demonstration/presence at the Viking Festival in Owl Head’s Park this weekend.
Where: Owl’s Head Park Colonial Road & 68 St Brooklyn, NY 11220
When: Saturday May 14, 2022 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (setup begins at 9 a.m.)
This year’s festival is “multi-cultural Viking” themed, so the demo will be focusing on how multiple cultures impact the Nordic world and vice versa.
If you plan on going, please let Catelin know when you plan to be there and what you plan to bring with you for the demonstration! Armiger Catelin can be reached via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Parking: There is no parking allowed in the park; attendees must park on the street. Bring hand carts if needed.
Amenities: Since this is an NYC park, if you can please bring chairs, tables, and pop-ups. For accommodations, email the SCA Demo Organizer email@example.com and we will do our best to help.
